Unsure? Ask an Expert!

A beautiful, and rather important late 19th-century printing of the Fables of Jean de la Fontaine. While other English translations of these popular tales exist, few feature the artwork of the famous Gustave Dore. Dore works are some of the most desirable of all book illustration and those included in this work are some of his most desirable pieces, outside of this Bible scenes.

 

This undated Hurst edition was translated by Walter Thornbury and features 65 illustrations, plus an additional 188 illustrated headpieces to each fable. This edition also differs from the similar Cassell edition published in 1876, and features two Dore illustrations that were not previously published!
